Lubricating gingher shears with jojoba

If you’ve ever asked yourself, ‘Can I use jojoba oil as a lubricant?’, the answer is yes. There are so many items around the household that can be cared for with a drop of jojoba oil. Most recently, I purchased a new pair of Gingher scissors. If you’re wondering how to oil scissors, the use and care guide states “Occasionally placing a drop of oil in the pivot area will facilitate a smooth cutting action.” Naturally, I use jojoba oil for this lubrication need. Not only is it technically a wax ester, which means it won’t get gummy or attract dust, but it also won’t stain clothing (an important thing since these are sewing shears).

Not only will these shears be lubricated occasionally with a drop of jojoba (putting some in an old dropper bottle is a great way to use with the precision needed), they will also be occasionally wiped down with the tiniest bit of jojoba and a soft, dry cloth to inhibit rust on the metal. Around here, we use jojoba oil as lube on the sewing machines (and sergers and coverstitch machines as well).
